Professional Licensure Defense

Holding a license has become a requirement for a range of activities and businesses.  From doctor to nail technician, from attorney to kick-boxing instructor, a professional license is at risk whenever a person is a focus of an investigation, prosecution, or even simple civil litigation.  The years of hard work, sacrifice, and effort required to secure a license can be wiped away with a simple error of planning in the defense of even simple cases. 

The Firm represents doctors, attorneys, C.P.A.'s, veterinarians, nurses, and many other types of license holders in defending their right to practice their profession.   We defend both narrow license challenges as well as the license issues raised in more complex and far-reaching litigation.  Our focus remains on preserving the rights conferred by the license – as part of the overall strategy of defending the client’s interests.

Our typical clients include:

  • Physicians
  • Applicants to the Florida Bar (before the Board of Bar Examiners)
  • Attorneys in investigation and grievance matters, including trial on the merits and appeal
  • Certified Public Accountants (before both the IRS -including proposed preparer penalty proceedings- and before the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation)
  • Nurses and
  • Veterinarians
  • Holders of other professional licenses.
